Regional Child, Youth and Family Committees

Purpose

Regional Child and Family Committees determine regional priorities for implementing the Supporting Families Changing Futures reform program and the domestic and family violence reform agenda in line with statewide directions established by the Interdepartmental CEO Committee and the Child Protection Reform Leaders Group. They also play a key role in facilitating effective working relationships at regional and local levels. 

Nine committees have been established across the state in response to Recommendations 12.4 and 12.12 in the Queensland Child Protection Commission of Inquiry’s final report.

Each committee is responsible for:

  • mapping the needs of their local communities and planning regional services to respond to those needs
  • encouraging innovative responses to improve the effectiveness of service delivery
  • supporting cultural and behavioural change across the non-government and government sectors to successfully implement the reforms
  • reporting progress on implementation of the reforms, including reporting local issues to the Child Protection Reform Leaders Group.

Membership

Committees have been established in the following regions:

While membership varies depending on regional needs and priorities, each committee includes representatives from both government and non-government agencies from across their region.
